[Drama 2019] Her Private Life 그녀의 사생활


Recommended Posts

I found a great comment by mehitable on this recap by Dramas with a Side of Kimchi:

I've seen many comments around the internets about the lack of plot in HPL, but here commenter discusses how in a romance book or movie, the romance is the plot. There's a usual structure for a romance plotline, and the commenter discusses how the plotline in HPL relates to this structure.

FINALE KISSES                                    THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!   

Before we move on, I just want to appreciate their first kiss again:     Sorry it's night time at my place so can't find more proper lighting for the painting. Anyway, an art direc

My First Real Fangirl Experience   Since we all don't have BTS today, I thought I'd share with all my fangirl buddies here what happened to me last night as yall were going wild watching ep

Love how sensitive Deok-mi is to Ryan's feelings, and how she handled it. The back hug was lovely, and just the right touch. Ryan wasn't asking for a big show of comfort, and Deok-mi understood.

 

Their fight about Latte was adorable, she whacking him as he teases her. These two are couple goals, haha.

Yeah i feel bad for EunGi knowing all about DeokMi's secrets but the actual truth he was left behind... 

 

 

Nope. I feel no sorry for Eun Go & Choi Daout. Like hello you've got all the time before, but why now?

 

 

Yesterday's episode was kinda special to me. Like yeah I enjoy watching the cute / funny scenes (even without sub) but that ending. She consoles him. She never ask him anything, she acknowledges how sensitive he is now. Just hug. 

 

I'm glad that he's slowly accept her concern and she of course trying best to make he feel better. The fact that they are both so receptive to each other's feelings, that they are so empathetic of each other, is such a beautiful thing. There are always be a safe space where both of them can let their guards down and become completely vulnerable.

Tears are not a sign of weakness though. Those tears a sign of strength, love and trust. A man who are able to access his emotions can do so because he’s confident of their masculinity and feel comfortable in front of the woman who he’s crying to.

 

 

Man, I definitely gonna have sick withdrawal symptoms when HPL ends :dissapointed_relieved:

Weighing in on Ep 11 too... Eungi's and Seonjoo's heartbreaks aside, it was a warm episode with a good dose of cute. :)

 

Ryan and Deokmi's relationship progress

It's only been a few days of being "official", but they've actually been in a relationship for a while already since the "fake dating" period had actually allowed them to go through the getting-to-know each other phase. Their relationship went to the next level of emotional maturity this episode, and I especially liked it that it was Deokmi (and not Ryan) who suggested they go off somewhere to talk. There was an issue that needed addressing, and she wasn't going to hum and haw about it. That gave her a good level ground to talk during the "face off" in his apartment, and you can see that despite their annoyance with each other in the car, they weren't going to go through accusatory finger pointings. It was all just a series of clarifications to be made, no blames assigned, only concerns brought to the table. And Deokmi explains very clearly the line drawn between fangirling and dating for real - there is no other true investment other than that of time and a good squee, which is what we all need from time to time, right? Every hobby is like that too. A real relationship, however, goes beyond that. Let's be honest and adult about it now - without the physical aspect to a romantic relationship, it doesn't really get anywhere. Both emotional and physical aspects of the relationship must develop in tandem. One without the other is really just a fling.

 

Eungi and Seonjoo need to sort out their lives

Everyone goes through some sort of imbalance at some point in their lives. And we need always to re-establish equilibria of some sort. For Eungi, he needs to get to where he can move on, and he must. As some of you have pointed out, him telling Deokmi that he will wait, regardless of how long it takes, is quite so pointless because she already made it clear to him that she is with Ryan. But it's something she can't rush in him. Truthfully, him saying that to her is very burdensome, hence her phone call to Ryan. She's naturally upset. But also, as Ryan advised, just don't do anything drastic. Everyone needs time to sort things through, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. 

 

Seonjoo, well, marital woes. She's right to point out that her husband's lack of truthfulness and manipulation (of her and their son) is recipe for relationship disaster. She's feeling hurt and betrayed not because of the content of the documentary but his lack of respect for her. That is truly a problem. Is it all Seungmin's fault though? I don't know. He doesn't seem to know his wife very well, and she too seems equally un-invested in their relationship. She did say she got married because she got pregnant, so maybe the relationship just never managed to get mature enough before they were committed to a life together. Much to be said again about getting into relationships when older than younger. Hopefully they both muster up enough courage to have that heart-to-heart talk the way Deokmi and Ryan did in their days-old relationship.

 

What's to come?

I do wonder if Dain's comment of "this leaves me with one thing to do" has more to do with the threat the exhibition is facing than with Ryan and Deokmi's relationship. Afterall, as Ryan said, Dain respects him first and foremost as an artist and creative director, and that much respect is mutual from him to her too. She came in part to Korea to find that artistic inspiration again. More than chasing a relationship that she clearly also knows never was, she is trying to move on to her next phase in artistic development. If Ryan commissions this piece of work with Sian, sure it must be that he believes it is something she can do, and do it she will if it brings her mojo back. 

 

The way Sian looks at Ryan when he talks about Lee Sol's paintings hints at him knowing something Ryan doesn't. And Ryan, being the way he is, isn't also about to ask too much lest it means he has to divulge too much. But is the connection between them as simple as brotherhood? Gotta ask then why Ryan was abandoned and where Sian popped up from thereafter. Sian has a backstory that's not been told yet.

 

Director Eom. I can't decide if I like her enough to hope things turn out well for her too. She's eccentric, for sure. But when she slapped Deokmi, she lost loads of points with me. She's definitely someone who thinks money controls all, including her daughter. I hope Sindy develops that maturity of character doing this internship, and I hope her mum learns what it's like to lose control of everything and everyone she thought was under her command of whim and fancy, and learn that true leadership comes with relationship building, even in the family.

So this is what they're doing all night -- actually playing :joy:

Bit of a late update by tvN. They must figure it's worthwhile since it features a small peck between our couple. I have to agree though, they are rather stingy with the video uploads in regards to this show. For the most part though, they are at least uploading most of the ones we actually want to watch over and over and over again. :tounge_xd:

Yeah, I remember they used to upload nearly all the scenes for WWWSK, including the side stories. Which was good for me, because even if my stream sucked, I could watch practically the whole episode on their Youtube right after it ended. :D Now they just upload 3 videos per HPL episode, 4 if we're lucky.

DM complimenting RG “you look pretty/ beautiful when you smile.” Huh?!? I was right, that’s not the way to reach out to an adult, please

You're right that's not they way to reach out to an adult, but that's the way you speak when you are in love. I don't know where you are but here in Canada it a very common practice or more it's a culture. We compliment to encourage bonding. You might find it fake when you hear 'Oh!, you look pretty today' or 'that color suits you' (something like that) this is the greetings we use after our Good morning. To you it may sound off but to us it sounds natural when you in love like RG and DM.

I can’t deal with this chemistry! It’s too much for me to handle! Ep. 11 was awesome!!! So many character developments in one episode! I’m kinda curious to see how they are going to carry the story for the last 4 episodes. Not that I am complaining, they can do lovey dovey scenes for the rest of the series and I would not mind that at all!

@Ondine, @luvcrabbieshinhwa

Edit to add- my last 2 posts were after watching raw, so there is a possibility don’t sense DM reaching out  since I don’t understand the dialogues. Now I see the gif above with subtitle- DM complimenting RG “you look pretty/ beautiful when you smile.” Huh?!? I was right, that’s not the way to reach out to an adult, please. 

 

 

I suggest to watch them with subs if you don't understand the language...then form an opinion after that. 

 

Though sometimes the subtitles lost in translation and nuance...

She will be his 'medicine'. I believe they play go or hwatu a korean game if I am not mistaken.

 

Most probably they place a bet who ever loses will receive a slap using two finger as punishment.

 

My prediction that Ryan lose and the receiver of the punishment. And yet DM put a kiss to soothe the 'injured place'.

 

Omo,omo.

I like to think the HPL team was like, "F continuity, we need to deliver the cute/sexy scenes the viewers want!" :lol:

@cenching @TheRoadtoPMY @Lj

Glad to be of some help to clear it up! I think for translators, it’s always difficult to either go with the direct translation or stick with the essence of the phrase! The thigh/high combo is hilarious though :lol:

 

 

 

 

@haelan Hahahaha! So glad to find a kindred spirit that’s of the same mind! :wub:

 

I love how you touched on the fact that SA comments about how DM is able to capture sides and expressions of him that he wasn’t even aware of. It’s also shown in the way she was able to see the meaning of the self portrait of that late artist from ep 5. She’s definitely someone who is acutely aware and sensitive to others and it helps her to sympathize and empathize well. I am also impressed by TVN! They definitely followed through on that promise! I’m replying to your comments under the spoiler tab...

Spoiler

And I share your sentiments about being worried about the childhood connection storyline... hopefully we can trust the writers! Like I said, I’m all in with the couple even though it may potentially get frustrating. 

 

I find your observation about the mom and DM’s scene interesting! Wow that would be quite a twist! We shall wait and see. 

 

As for EG and DI flocking together... I’d say it would be a little too neat for me to set them up, but at the same time, as long as they don’t bother the OTP, I’m fine LOL

 

And wow! You totally read my mind... definitely was thinking about Ghost and a little bit of Titanic  :rolleyes:

@celest1al This is seriously so...WILD. I had my thoughts planned out right before I saw your post and I literally had to stare at my phone and blink a few times because who is this person who just hacked into my brain and ghostwrote this for me?

- OK GREAT. I'm glad I wasn't the only one who noticed that. I haven't had the chance to rewatch (but I'm about to after this) but that was my instant reaction when I was first watching today's episode. Admittedly, I'm also kinda worried about this storyline and their connection. I've seen many reactions regarding the possible childhood connection trope, most not very receptive towards it. I think we could do fine without it, but the writing of this drama has been subverting many tropes already so I am hoping this will be tackled in the same way. I'm really excited for tomorrow's episode and them exploring Ryan's past. And the ultimate bonus of all -- KJW with kids again!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! One of my strongest hunches is that DM's mom has a past with the orphanage.

I had to rewatch this scene to clear my thoughts, because when I first watched this, for a hot second I actually thought that maybe, just maybe, DM was also adopted. I need to rewatch some of the earlier episodes with DM's dream that was similar to Ryan's, her mom's memory after looking at the kids in EG's dojo when she came to visit, as well as the dialogue between DM's mom and Editor Nam and their past. It's been mentioned before that DM had a younger brother that passed? I might edit this reply later once I gather more information with my train of thought. I can already see where I could be wrong though, but the main reason why I thought that DM could have been adopted was because of the last screencap where she regretted saying that and shut her mouth. But then again, having fights like this with you mom could also lead to saying something you don't mean and still doing the same reaction as DM. Again, I'm pretty sure I'm wrong but I just felt the need to put it out there.

 

- Will the second leads please just give our couple a rest? We know the angst is coming up in the remaining episodes, but throwing the second leads in there might just add unnecessary conflict. This is one thing that ticks me off -- what is CDI's purpose? Ryan has explicitly told her already that he isn't interested in her at all. CDI is in denial knowing full well what Ryan's feelings are (and to our pure-hearted SA who was trying to ease his manager's comments knowing it might make her uncomfortable). If she was a good friend, shouldn't she just leave Ryan be happy with the one he loves, although I am very curious to see her history with Ryan as a romantic interest. I'm also worried that she would do something like you mentioned, where she'll think that Ryan finding his missing link with Lee Sol will suddenly make him fall for her. Unfortunately, that's not how this works. Not in this drama and not in the real world. Also @ EG -- I get that you're steadfast in your feelings in not giving them up but buddy, I have some news for you. It's never going to work out. And I felt bad for DM because his confession was burdensome and she didn't know how to handle the situation, but I'm glad that she and Ryan were able to talk about it openly and she immediately told him. Seeing the preview, it looks like EG and CDI will be meeting each other. But hey, the saying goes "Birds of a feather flock together" right?

- I see you're suggesting a possible Ghost-like scene :phew:? We stan a true intellectual :w00t:

I personally think what CDI going to do is make sure the exhibition goes smoothly? Because she's involved there and perhaps that's the only thing she can do for RG? IDK just my thought :D
